My FI and I have an amazingly supportive family. Some of our closest family members have offered to help us out in some way with our wedding. They ask “what do you need us to get?” which leads me to think that they are not just trying to be polite. Although my FI and I could use that help and have accepted help (i.e. my mom buying the catering and cake) we are uncomfortable with accepting the help. Should we just avoid it?
I really have no clue! And they are pretty persistant with offering help. We tried to tell them that we have a honey fund but it’s not enough to apease them.

PinkerBelle: Do they have any skills that you would otherwise have to hire? photography? cake baking? flower arranging? or things you can borrow? cake stand, vases etc

- Wedding: December 2014 - 13th ~ TN
PinkerBelle: Let them help! I can promise people are not always so gracious! If it is monetarily then let them and save your money for the honeymoon or home. It is lending services or items for the wedding, let them. Still could save you money.
